Making Agile Work for YOU!

with John Garison

Registration for the dinner is now closed.

Click here to register for the webinar.

Agile, scrums, backlogs, user stories, sprints...What's it all about? What do I need to know? And what's in it for me?

Join us as John Garison, an experienced Agile practitioner, answers these questions and more. In his 10+ years of experience with the Agile method, John has learned that no two Agile implementations are the same. Even within the same company, different groups practice Agile in slightly different ways. Regardless of the Agile realities at your organization, you can learn to navigate murky waters, get the information you need, and use the Agile method to iteratively produce better, stronger, more useful documentation to support your customers.

Whether your organization is considering a move to Agile or you're already up to your elbows in backlogs and user stories, you'll learn some new perspectives, and leave with a better understanding of how you can make Agile work for your role in Technical Communication.
